Launch Athens Campaign 2023
After working with several partner organisations in
Athens for the first time last year, we are now launching our second fundraising campaign in the Greek capital.
Over the last 12 months, government aid services there, such as the ESTIA programme that provided housing for refugees, have been closed. At the same time, Eleona's camp, the only camp in the city, was also evicted. For refugees in the city, this means either homelessness or living in remote camps outside Athens.
All these reasons have moved us to work again with four different partner organisations in Athens.
We already supported the Mazi Housing Project last year.
They provide accommodation for 23 refugee men, provide them with tickets for public transport and organise medical appointments. Last year, we were already able to support them with detergentand cleaning materials for a whole year. We now want to repeat this.
We have also already worked with Khora in 2022. In their Social Kitchen they cook 400 hot meals a day and in their Free Shop people in need can choose hygiene products and clothes.
Medical Volunteers International is one of two new partner organisations in this campaign. They provide medical care both through street work and in their small clinic in central Athens.
Glocal Roots has opened a safe space for women in Athens. There they offer a retreat where women can engage in a variety of activities while childcare is also available.
We will introduce you to all these partner organisations in the coming days and weeks. In order for this campaign to be successful and for us to play a part in continuing to provide much needed help, we need you. Every donation helps, tell your parents, friends, acquaintances and everyone you meet about us.
Together we are stronger!
Clothing donations for Samos Volunteers
This year prior to our Samos campaign in 2023
we collected shoes, scarves, hats, and gloves in response to a request from our partner organization Samos Volunteers.
All of these clothes and shoes went directly to Samos Volunteers' Free Shop, where regular clothing distributions
take place. In total, we could support Samos Volunteers with
three bags of shoes weighing 20 kilograms each and six packages of gloves, hats, and scarves.
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to many more collection campaigns with you!
Football Shoes Donation for Cheerin Greece
On February 16, 2023, with the tremendous support of our
partner organization Wir Packens An e.V., we sorted and
shipped football shoes from their warehouse in Biesenthal.
Thanks to a generous donation of numerous Puma brand football cleats from Charity Cat e.V. we were able to send a total of 11 parcels containing shoes, jerseys, socks, sports bags and
gloves to our partner organization Cheerin Greece in Athens.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to
Wir Packens An e.V. and Charity Cat e.V.
for their tremendous support.
